The Argentina National Team rewrote a memorable page in the history of the country’s women’s volleyball and qualified for the Olympics for the 2nd time in a row.



In front of the 7,000 rival’s fans, Argentina recovered from losing an opening set against Colombia in the last round of the 2020 South American Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournament in Bogotá and progressed to the Tokyo event: 3-1 (16-25, 25-21, 25-16, 25-23). Before the match, both sides were leveled at 2-1 and 6 points, so it was a decider for the Olympic visa.

The “Las Panteras” prevailed after an hour and 58 minutes of a play and were led by Elina Rodríguez (20 points). Amanda Coneo scored 14 points for Colombia, while Valerin Carabali made 5 kill blocks. Argentina took advantage of their 2nd chance to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games, as they have failed to do so in the International Qualifier last year. Argentina will join Brazil as the representatives of South America in the Tokyo event.
